OTD: November 25

25 November 2021

Remembering past matches played by the Iron on November 25...

Former Iron players born on this day: Keith Lindsey (1946).

Two sensational strikes in as many second-half minutes from Josh Morris earned Scunthorpe a 2-0 victory over Charlton in a top-of-the-table clash in 2017.

Brought on at the break in a return to action following injury, the winger curled home a free-kick just after the hour mark before then rifling in an even better effort from 25 yards minutes later.

In a game between the division's two form teams, there was little to choose between either during the first half, though the Addicks - unbeaten since the middle of September - had forged the better chances.

Mark Marshall and Ricky Holmes were both denied by home goalkeeper Matt Gilks, sandwiching a header from Josh Magennis, which was scrambled clear after hitting the foot of a post, while at the other end, Ben Amos reacted well to tip over a header from Tom Hopper.

Morris' introduction at the interval undoubtedly swung the match in Scunthorpe's favour and after lifting a perfectly-weighted free-kick over the visiting wall and into the back of the net, Amos had no chance with the winger's curling strike from range, which nestled into the opposite corner and secured his side a sixth straight win.
